Huge signing. Unlike the past 10 years, our young talent is all extended and sticking fat for the journey. Great to see!

Keep working hard Trac and you’ll enjoy success in red and blue with your mates!

I love the use of the plural in premierships. Arrogance and talent can be an exciting mix.

 

Pledging his loyalty to Melbourne, Petracca expressed how important it was for him to remain a one-club player.

“It means everything. The club put faith in me as an 18-year-old kid and drafted me, and all I want to do is repay that faith,” he said.

“That’s by winning premierships and staying at the club for as long as I can."

I cause he sign up he is Italian, what u Skips don't understand is as Italians are the most loyal people on earth, Italian AFL  players really leave there first club

A couple of typos in there but l think we get the gist of your point. 

First hand, l can confirm ltalians once trusted, are one of the most giving and loyal cultures around. 

Once betrayed, stay well away! 

Love what CP5 has done, to return the club's faith in him. 

MFC is slowly building and binding a very high class list for the years ahead.

Wonder, and if ever Mr Connors has tried to incorporate the word loyalty back into one of his contracts.

See, once Trac said the word "loyalty" it was all over...........

That’s a bit of a myth.

:P

 

Purple made that up on radio, he ask  Mark Ricciuto, if it was true that Melbourne offered 2 first rounders and trac for lever, mark said where do I sign. Purple just makes thing up a bit like a  scattergun rumour maker.

I’ve never heard that one, and it just sounds outright ridiculous.

Adelaide’s list manager inquired into Petracca as part of the Lever trade. I heard Justin Reid state this on trade radio. He said Melbourne and Petracca’s manager swiftly declined.

St Kilda stuffed up SO badly with their first pick. This guy was a no brainer.

You can build a list around him.

Apparently he was thought to be a bit immature, yet all I see is limitless enthusiasm, loyalty and an unbridled team focus.

I absolutely love this kid. I’m pumped about this extension.

Super pumped!

Fantastic news. It'll send a huge message through the talented young group we have.

Just as an aside do you notice that CP5 jnr's neck is thicker that big bucks. Just wait until he grows into the Truck.

How this for timing - I literally just opened my four year old son’s new membership pack.

On the front of his membership card, it has a photo of Petracca. He’s Henry’s favourite player - Henry thinks he’s a real life T-Rex.

On the back of his membership card, it says ‘Consecutive years of membership: 6’.

I signed Henry up as a 20 week old foetus - exact full name and accurate (future) date of birth. Pretty confident he’s the youngest official member in the history of the club.

He’s already waiting for his signed birthday card from the red and blue T-Rex.

I’m relieved he’s committed to this club.

That last line probably covers the feeling of 40 000 others RB

Another positive step forward for the club.  We all know what a fantastic player Trac is, but he is also a terrific person and just the sort of personality you need at the club.  

It's more great news for the MFC and I can't wait to see him tearing it up through the middle this season and beyond!

Interesting

I assume he got a raise for 2018 and then a good amount for 2019 and 2020.

Must have meant that they had some salary cap movement left for this season which is no surprise given the renewals we are facing at end of season.

Well executed by the club and would love to see one or two others signed in the next few months.

How much is the foetus membership?

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by
